Patch 9.16- Somua SM

Good day everyone,

A while back a new French Tier 8 premium heavy was shown on supertest.


While largely unchanged, some minor changes to the stats have been made, here they are so far:


A French heavy tank, presented by French tank designers as a competing design to the AMX 50. Work began in 1946, but a prototype wasn’t developed until October 1951. Incorperating German tank technology, the tank featured a 100mm autoloading gun in an oscillating turret. The tank was tested from January to July of 1953 but results weren’t promising. The project was later abandoned for the AMX 50.
